Can You Remove and Relocate Pallet Racks on Your Own?

Buying everything new when you relocate your factory or warehouse might seem like the right idea a lot of the time. However, if your pallet racks are still relatively new and fully functional, then you might want to consider saving some money and simply dismantling them so you can transport them to your new location and install them there.

Now, the question isn’t really whether or not you and/or some of your employees could remove the racks on your own. After some time and following a more or less steep learning curve, the process could be completed. However, the real issue is that you will not only be wasting a lot of time, but you’ll also have to deal with the very real risks associated with removing large racks made from heavy metallic elements that could seriously injure someone if they aren’t removed or handled properly.

Most experts will rather recommend that you hire a professional rack removal service for dismantling and removing your pallet racks as safely and as quickly as possible. Since they handle this type of work just about every day, they’ll be fully aware of the pitfalls and challenges that have to be faced and overcome, and they’ll know how to guard against accidents and injuries. In fact, the best approach would be to also hire them to install the old pallet racks inside your new warehouse as well, so you can be up and running again as soon as possible.
